Safeguarding Nortk
Shore Interests
lb,   BUvius'   Lettar  in ' MlnUter
s "iif\ymm-~~'—
l After the hearing of the c. P. li.
impany'i application for approval of
t. route map on the North Shore at
Ottawa ea Friday—North Vancouver
being represented thereat by Mayur
McNeiih and Clerk Bhopbenl (eity),
and Reovo May (diitrict)—Mr. 11. II.
Htcvens M.I'   indited a lettOr to the
f i(.jiiii. Frank Cochrane, minister of rail
ways, embodying tbe reasons why curtain representation! made at (he hear
, viug required careful consideralioii. The
miuister ou receipt ur tbii letter ,aa-
I tured tbe inember for Vancouver thai
the interests of his ■■ ucntii would
j be fully prutected.
■ Mr. Stevens'letter to the Hou. Frauk
Cochrane was us followi:
"Dear Sir—Re application of the
i'. P. B. for approval of route map ou
tbe north shore of Burrard Inlet:
"I  feel  certain  tbat  you  did   not
ce   of
application or the effect infill have
if as we stated Ibis morning it I" np
proved of without having certain slip
olatcd conditions made.
Control on Nortb Short
"First permit me to draw lo your ut
teutiou this fsct, namely, tbat    Ibe
0.  1'.  ic,  under  tbeir  charter,  may
Inni,I branch lines.   This application of
theirs for approval of tbe route map
will place in their hands the control
of transportation facilitiei ou the north
shore.   To this 1 strongly protest.
V'l confess tbst you stated that you
would mi that for a cortain dlslauce
Other lines would have running lights.
This, however, is not satisfactory   to
my cotisiiiuenii for various reasoui.
"Tbo railway company would be
given almost as exclusive a right en
tbe north ibere ai tbey have ou lhe
smith shore at the present time, whieh
is one of tho most serious handicaps
to the development of Vancouver harbor.
Then tbe Burrard Inlet Tunnel and
Bridge Compauy bail definite approved
plans which tbey are actually proceed
ing witb at the present time as rapidly
rthey possibly can .ud which involve
large ozepondituro of money.
"In my mind, Ihe present applies
tiou of tbe C. 1'. It. uulcss otherwise
provided for, will affect this under
taking fur which the people have already voted iiniiiev .
"Again, I waa successful, aftor a
great deal of bard work, and acting ai
- representative of the whole ,li.in. i, ip
■ecuring definite action from tbe put c
works department towardi the sieve) . -
ment and improvement of Vancouver
harbor ,uml to that end the public
worki department iceurod tbe services
of Mr. Swan, a most eminent engineer,
to make an investigation and report
on a definite plau or procedure.
"He bu made his investigation on
the ground most exhaustively, and ii
uow preparing his pl.ni and reports^
wbicb I espcel, will be pretentcd in
the courso of a few weekt. Tbii con
templates a distribution system of rail
ways and I am convinced th.t this ap
plication of tbe 0, V. R. is now boing
made with tht intention of anticipating
the ii'i'Tt of Mr. Swan.
"1 took tn. i|u«llou up with Sir
Thomaa Sbaughneiiy and he staled
1 tbat io far ai their preient system wai
concorned, tbey would .not entertain
apy suggestion of turuiog it over to a
harbor commission, which leads me lo
conclude that they are aniious to ic
curt approval of their plans in such
* way as to control the distribution
lyitera ou tbt nortb thore u will as
on Ihe south ibere.
Further, 1 migbt .late, that itrong
representation! have been mad. by my
s'flf and others for the establishment
■ Vof a terminal elevator and while I do
not care at the preient time te ao far
anticipate Mr. Swan's report as lo
suggest where It ihould be located, I
'/ (eel confident that the application of
tha C. P. B. If approved ai stated .this
Kerning will forever handicap ui in ao
approach te tbii terminal elevator, iu
Sjimteb u It will be used more by the
lOauadiau Northern, the Grand Trunk
Pacific and tbe new propoied provincial
Peace Biver line. I alio with lo point
out that the conilruction of the lipt
py the ('.. p. p. comprehend! another

The secretary's report was very on

the opening had been a huge euccesa.

many lives.   As a pleasure house for
nn° buy* nr ovpn for his phums,  |t:
soonis extravagant, pot merely beeauso
the mp>oy might he employed more
usefully, hnt because it is uot unlikely
to lm it bad't|ilng for the boy.
Turn, fpr illustration, tp what hap-
pound on Christmas in Orange (N. .1.1
where anothor spoiled rich man's son
apd his cliiiiiis drove recklessly through
the streets in a epstly high ppworod au
louiiiliile. ll'i'i'i'dini: tho speotl law,
wbicb tp a curtain class nt rich malefactors is a Joke, thoy ran dpwii and injured, a young woman. Instead pf
stopping to holp and carry her to a
hospital thoy increased their speed. In
their wild race to escape bofore the
number tmuld bo overtaken thoy run
over aud killed a hoy.
Su far was this from sobering them
that tbey put on full speed ,aud when
the machine waa dually wrecked' by
skidding iulp a cml, thoy ran olT on
foot, aud whon overtaken fought tooth
and nail ugninst arrest uutil tbey were
subdued by force. Perhaps this boy
and his . Hum., were bad boys; perhaps
if Ilny bud been poor tin ■ would have
been robbing orchards or picking puck
eti to buy theatre tickets. Yet lhe
chnncoB ure lhat wealth was Ihe demoralizing thing; whatever the effect of
poverty on crime may be, it is less ilis
astrous than indulgence.
I Wllte simple life is desirable for nil
it is imperative for Iho children of rich
men. Those can offer Iheir sons every
advuntage, but they ought to know Hint
no luxury of mci'liiiuical toys or pri
vale tutors or automobiles, or foreign
travel, or costly play bouse wilh titiir
bio swimming pools can make up fur s
naming iii vanity, self indulgence, idleness and disregard for Ihe rights uf
others. ,
The extravagant outlay uf well-to-do
Aincrii-nim on their children is a scandal to intelligent foreign observers, whu
contrast this empty luxury with the
S|.ati:iii severity with which princes are
trained. Jn au ariatucracy pampering
the yuung is carefully avoided; a plutocracy seems lu rale money higher
and children not so high. It litis been
explained that tho American mother
js responsible for Ihis coddling, this
baste to gratify every expensive craving fur playthings ur for pocket mon
ey. But surely the American father,
if his head is nut altogether tilled with
business, ought to have something lo
say ohout it.
At worst a boy who threatens to de:
teriorato can be packed off tu n perti
cularly plain and efflclonl schuul. where
plutocratic pretensions arc snubbed.
Nu une thing has dune so much fur the
upper classes ul England; the "playground al Ei.ui," to which Wellington
ascribed the victory of Waterloo, has
done much more titan that for Eng
lund. II is bard lo bring up either a
boy or a girl sensibly iu a bouse where
a great ileal of money is being Bpent,
und a luxurious Ann rutin home is the
worst ol nurseries. But is n ♦,'lt),i)iii|
toy tbe best of substitutes!
A nation of yuung men equipped
with a semi military training and
ready lu pul Ibis training lu use if
necessary, would lie the grealest guar
anlee of peace in the Western llctnli
I'licre, slates Ihe Toronto World. If
' .n.ii'l.i is lo become a nation she must
'land uu her owu ground in every
thing and she must be propaicd lo
shoulder her share of every problem
thnt will confront the empire us i
whole. Mm cannot do this by evading
Iter responsibilities.

North Vancouvtr, B. 0,., ,,,
.February 13,1812.
The prompt and energetic course of
action, followed by II. II Stevens, M.I'.
in eeehing to ensure the protection of
publio interests on the North Shore
from undue encroachments with respect
to tho application of the Canadian Pa
iiiiii: Railway Company for approval of
their route map from North Arm west
ward ia quite rightly the subject of (•■
voriibln comment on all sides, locally.
The position taken by Mr. Stevens
in his letter to the Minister of Railways immediately afler the conclusion
of tho hearing of the application on
Friday last, is thu buiiio as that taken
by the local public bodies with rasped
to tbe time limit, running rights umi
connection with Second Narrows bridge
but the letter of the member goes
somewhat farther aud raises the quits
tion of the relationship of the (1. V. 11.
to the proposed Hoard of Harbor Com
mi ■. ium i . to the establishment of
ii iiiiini'l elevator and to all questions
of municipul moment similar to those
in which the relationships obtaining
j.. t .... i. the (.'. 1'. II. and the city ef
Vancouver have not proven satisfac
tory lo lbc latter. Each one of these
is an issue of prime importance and the
North Hhore is indebted lo the insight
and the activity of Mr. Stevens for the
safeguarding of local interests with rasped thereto.
The terms of Ihu letter aro pointed
and forceful, in dealing with the necessity of rendering impossible any re
petition of tbo monopoly which has
dialed iu Vancouver as follows: "The
railway company would be given almost
us exclusivo a right on the North
Hhore as they have on the Houth Shore
at tho present lime, which is ene of
the iii'iil serious handicaps to the tie
telopiiieut of Vancouvar harbor."
"Experience is a good teacher,"
and tbe member for Ibis constituency
ia tbererore thoroughly logical, in his
1'nntentioiii that the municipalities on
the North Shore should profit by the
object leasoii which has been provided
by tho greater city across the Inlet hy
sicking to safeguard every point that
would tend to place tbis community in
a position of disadvantage in relation
to any railway corporation, such as
Vancouvor bas found itself compelled
itt certain instances, to assume.
Nortli Vancouver desires lhal free
accees should be accorded all railways,
in tbo matter of the carrying trade of
the Nortli Shore. The aim which is
kept eteadily in tiew with reference In
incoming railways is that uo undue
advantage should be secured liy any one
railway in rclatiou toany other or by
any one railway in ita relation to the mu
niclpalltlet, but rather that ull rail
wuy companies should do business on
the North Hhore on an even basis us
between themselves and on a basis
whicii will ensure the maintenance of
harmonious relationships between ihem
and the municipalities whose interests
arc or may be involved.^
The position taken by Mr. Stevens
is such as to promote lhe desires of
this portion of his constituency iu these
s important particulars and the favor
able reply which he is reported to have
received from the Minister of llnilways
leads to the conclusion that he has
been succtissrul in his efforts, thus rendering ejrvices or great value to the
local intereats entrusted to him • red
eral representative.
There ia no question which can be
raised tbat is more vitally Important
in the national' lire or Canada or or
any country than that or the absolutely
unassailable validity or every marriage
which is solemnized within its borders
Id tbis connection the statesmanlike utterances of Hon. R. h. Rorden, l'remier
of Canada, in bis opening remarks dur
ing bis recent address in tbe house at
Ottawa, oo tbe bill to amend the Mar
riagt Act, introduced by Mr. E. A.
Lancaster, stale the case in most appropriate terms.  The Premier declared!
"The marriage relation is the whole
"baaia of our civilization and it is
"concerned witb tlio moral and reji
"gioua lift of tbe whole people
"Upon tha validity of marriage de
"pands the sanctity of the home,
"and the establishment of the rola-
''Hon il concerned with the every
"day a*airt el M*, to tbo way of
"tha Aeteent and transmission of
''iveimfimi to tint way, *• will
"as in the way,I have first mention-
"ed, il touches most nearly, the
"every day life of Ihe people. I
"concur entiruly with my lion, friend
"(Mr. Lancaster) In this respect,
"that the most important considers-
''tion of all is absolute certainty us
"to tha form, to establish tho rola-
"tion. It is perfectly evident to alt
"of us that the law should, as far as
"possible, bu absolutely certain and
Those sentences lay down, in unambiguous terms, funilaiuciiful proposl
tions, concerning which there can exist,
only "ii. i ii ti unanimity of opinion.
If there is any particular in which tin
certainty exists with respect to, or iu
whicii i siiiiiiMiin may arise out of Ihe
Marriage Inn of tho Dominion of Canada as il exists at the present time, it
is a mutter of .the utmost urgency and
importance that the law be so amend
cd us lo eliminate such conditions forever.
Unfortunately ,the problem is besd,
at the outset by doubt as lo jurisdiction. Tlie British North America Ad
which is the basis of the Canadian constitution, gives the federal government
ontrol of "Marriage and Divorce" Imt
bis general provision is followed by a
specific i ImiM' which gives lo the pro
vincial legislature cont nil of the "solemnisation t|f. uuinni|i. ■ within the pru
vinca." From this it would appeur
lhat it is for the civil law of each
province to provide the conditions under
which each marriage ceremony must be
conducted, in order lo constitute a legal
marriage. Tlio civil law is the sole au
Ihority iu Ihis rasped and uo provisions
of ecclesiastical law as recognized by
any particular religious body can be
of any force or tiffed until and unless
they are specifically Incorporated iu lhe
civil law.
From th."-.' considerations, it is evi
dent that Ihere is room for wide diver
genes as lo Ibo law which governs the
i-iili'iiiiii/iilinii of marriage iu the re
spedive provinces of tin: Dominion.
The advantages whicii would accrue
from the establishing or a uniform
marriage law for the entire Dominion
appear to have been generally reoogni)
ed ami tacitly accepted not only in the
debate ou the proposed amendment upon
the floor of tin li'.yss, but likewise in
the discussions whicii have occurred
throughout the country.
The question which must lirst be decided iu approaching Ibis matlCr wilh
a view to a Dominion law is, lias Hit'
federal parliament jurisdiction in the
premises! and if so, What is lbc precise
nature and extent of that jurisdiction I
lu order Ibat Ihis matter may be au
thorltutively decided l'remier Borden
declared lhe Intention ul tbt govern
ment as follows:
"The government has therefore
"determined to submit for tbe opio
"ion of the Supreme Court of Can
"ada, thu question as lo the legis
"latlve competence of parliament, to
"enact Ihis bill, and any further
"question necessary to dellue dearly
"the power of parliament, to legis
"late iu such matters. The case
"will be carried on appeal, to the
"judicial committee of the I'rivy
"Council in order lhat Ana* and au
"Ihoritative determination may thus
"be obtained."
The constitutionality of any leglila
tion which may be enacted by the red
eral house consequent upon the deliver
mice or the i'ldvy Council in this matter
will not be open to question and the
possibilil "of expensive litigation such
as would inevitably grow out or legis
lation enacted under present conditions
will be altogether removed.'
The method or procedure outlined by
the Premier ia not only in rull accord
witb the time honored maxim "Be
Sure You're Right, and Then Oo
Ahead" but it is likewise Iho method
which is best lined to avoid friction
and animosity in the final adjustment
or a situation which is recognized te

"Do," tald I, grimly. "I would Ilka

Ha stared at ma ao long tbat It
gave me an uncanny feeling. I broke

"Burke, where'a tbat ruby?"
"Don't try to browbeat me," be aald
through bla teeth. "Please uuder

I laughed In bli face.
"Maybe It will lntereit you to know

positively rcpulilvo about the man in

He kuew that 1 wu more or loss at

Tbia disturbed pondering, however,
carried me round In a circle. If tbere

only man living wbo would bave any
Intereat In getting them from Page.
Again, II Page's hatred of Fluette wu

a coveted jowol, would he give thii
iame jewel to a nephew for whom be
entertained no liii'ng. knowing Ibat
tbe Jewel waa dtitlned for his enemy,

himself of Ibo foe tbut had houuded

Thero was nothing else for ino to do
except follow these avenues lo the
end; but whichever was lhe right one,
lhat .end musl be bltlcr. I met tlie
pitcoue look In Genevieve Cooper's
eyes, ami my heart sank.
I have often been told that when I
waul It lo bu my counlcnaiioe Is Illegible; assuredly, at this moment It

All al once Miss Cooper was on her
feel, lhe shadow of a great dread
darkening her countenance; her voice
trembled like Ihe voice of a little child
that Is ufruid. Her uext words supplied more definite knowledge respect

"No- thtu"» not It—not exactly." Bhe
said, wilh i,nu,its i.t effort, "liul It Is

"I wus ol age the fifth of last month
—December—and on lhal day Uncle
Alfred came lo mo In great illslress.
He told ine lhal ho wu expecting any

would be made upon bim for an enormous sum of money; a demand that
he would have to meet promptly or go

lhal he couldn't raise near lite amouiii
of the demand, and Unit ho would be

and has already received the active eo-

It baa been felt tbat the cast divlsloi

justifies, and with the various projects

Tbe hit meeting was held lasl week
at 340 I'ender street west at which
officers were elected and a program of
work decided on, and il was considered
that lbc most vital matters to be nusb
cl forward immediately were Ibe build

wuuld alsu carry car track over the
McCartney Creek, Hie completion of

Tho idea of using a wireless telegra

cognac or clarifying champagne is, al
first thought fantastic, but is being
tried witb success.
Many years ago chemists conceived
the idea of utilizing Ihe action of dec
trie currents of high frequency in the
perfumery industry, producing a kind
uf electrolysis, which iu a way as yel
unexplained, Haiti's ami compound- lbc
diverse essences that enter into the
composition of a scent.
This phenomenon inspired some in
tercsting experiments recently under
taken in Franco. An electric genera
tor of bigb frequency is installed in
Ihe store rooms, wave rooms and wiue
vaults lo seud llertziuu waves all
around the buttles. By this two widely different results arc expected tu be
obtained—tbe aging of cugnac and the
drawing out of the deposit which the
fermentation 'causes, which is expected
lo accumulate around the cork.
The apparulus used fur Ibe applies
tion uf tbe Hertzian waves is kept a
profound secret by Ihe manufacturers.
